Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale

35 questions

Perfectionism is a personality trait characterized by an excessively high standard of performance or a need to strive for flawlessness constantly. Perfectionists often set extremely high goals for themselves and can be highly critical of their own performance and others. Perfectionism can have negative consequences, such as increased stress and anxiety, a tendency to procrastinate, and an increased risk of developing mental health problems, such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is important to note that perfectionism is a spectrum and that everyone exhibits perfectionistic tendencies to some degree. It is when perfectionism becomes extreme and interferes with an individual’s functioning that it can become problematic. This scale is used to assess an individual’s perfectionism level and track changes in perfectionism over time.

What you get:
  • Score for concern over mistakes and doubts about actions.
  • Score for excessive concern with parents’ expectations and evaluation.
  • Score for excessively high personal standards.
  • Score for concern with precision, order and organisation.
